18th Century Interdisciplinary Discussion

Founded in early 1990, C18-L is an international, interdisciplinary forum for discussing all aspects of 18th-century studies — that is, the "long 18th century," which extends roughly from 1660 to 1830.

C18-L is a virtual forum that works by circulating posted messages via e-mail to all subscribers. The primary language of C18-L is English, but we welcome correspondence in other languages as well. Our bibliographical database, Selected Readings, is multilingual.

C18-L subscribers can expect to receive frequent bulletins of professional interest (notices of conferences, grants, fellowships, calls for papers, etc.), and are welcome to post or forward such bulletins. Subscribers who send queries (asking for help with identification of quotations, recommendations for reading, research support, &c.) report they have received answers within 24 hours, and sometimes even within minutes. We also enjoy debates on a wide variety of topics, so that the tone of the discussion is something like a particularly stimulating coffeeroom discussion or seminar. We are usually able to avoid the rancor that afflicts other internet discussion groups subscription form and archive


The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing, established in 1991 also offers a mailing list with the aim to promote research and education in book history - broadly defined as the history of the creation, dissemination, and uses of script and print. Book History finds a broad understanding: The history of the book is not only about books per se: broadly speaking, it concerns the creation, dissemination, and reception of script and print, including newspapers, periodicals, and ephemera. Book historians study the social, cultural, and economic history of authorship; the history of the book trade, copyright, censorship, and underground publishing; the publishing histories of particular literary works, authors, editors, imprints, and literary agents; the spread of literacy and book distribution; canon formation and the politics of literary criticism; libraries, reading habits, and reader response.
